Brewing Hop Mess: Pump House Wet Hop

Greg Nash, the brewer who brought credibility, respect, and bold new flavours to Garrison Brewery last year, before being let go after brewing the Canadian Beer of the Year, is at it again. This time at Pump House Brewing Co. in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Nash spends a lot of his time at the brewery helping brew Pump House's signature beers, but he still manages to get down to the brew pub to whip up some experimental batches. One of the latest include his Double Imperial Dementia IPA, a beer with over 100 IBU's, tons of character and it is extremely flavourful. However, it is his new creation that has people talking and thankfully Nash put together a short video to better illustrate his madness.

Check out this video as Nash and other brewers make Eastern Canada's and possibly the rest of Canada's first ever 'wet hop' beer, which is also made with all organic ingredients. Introducing Imperial Wethop Red Ale. Fermentation is complete and the lucky citizens of New Brunswick will soon be able to taste it on tap down at the brew pub.

It was a small batch but Black Oak did one of these a few years ago:
